Education experts, eh?

From Nicholas Kristoff’s column today:

Some education experts, like Richard Whitmire, author of “Why Boys Fail,” argue that the success of girls has to do in part with how schools teach children. Tweaking curriculums by exposing kids to more books full of explosions might lead boys to do better in reading — and if boys continue to lag, there’ll be more of a push for boy-friendly initiatives.

Hey, I have an even better idea. Why don't we tweak the curriculum by exposing kids to more books full of Richard Whitmire being punched in the cock for reinforcing stupid gender stereotypes.

Explosions, seriously? Fuck this Herman Melville guy, not enough shit being blown up in Moby Dick!

I swear, it's like the trifecta of stupid on the NYTimes opinion page today.
